WHAT IS HUMAN RISK?
HUMAN RISK IS ‘THE RISK OF PEOPLE DOING THINGS THEY SHOULDN’T, OR NOT DOING THINGS THEY SHOULD’ – THE LARGEST RISK FACING ORGANISATIONS.
Human Risk the company, was born of a realisation on the part of our founder Christian Hunt, that there was a disconnect between the drivers of risk within companies and the manner in which they were mitigated via Ethics & Compliance programmes.
When things go wrong in organisations, there is always a human component – people either cause problems or make them worse by the way in which they react to them. Yet traditional approaches to ethics & compliance, often fail to consider behavioural drivers and mitigate risk by thinking about the way we would like people to behave, rather than the way they are likely to behave.

Having been COO of one of the UK’s Financial Services regulators, Christian became Global Head of Compliance & Operational Risk Control for UBS Asset Management, giving him a unique perspective from both sides of the regulatory fence. As a result, he identified and successfully field-tested the potential that Behavioural Science offers to improve the level and quality of employee engagement with ethics & compliance.
